Relief as Gov. Josh Shapiro, signs historic legislation to combat financial toxicity in breast cancer treatment.

Shapiro is the 48th Gov of Pennsylvania and this will be his first bill signed into law since taking office in January.

The new law will allow people at a higher risk of breast cancer to receive additional genetic counseling, ultrasounds, and MRIs, among other treatments, at no cost.

This is a watershed moment because Pennsylvania is leading the way in the fight against breast cancer by eliminating out-of-pocket costs associated with BRCA.
